HOW TO HAVE A MENTALLY HEALTHY SCHOOL, COMMUNITY OR ORGANISATION: TRANSFORMATIONAL CHANGE FROM UNWELL TO WELL CULTURES


About the conference

Eminent presenters, all experts in the field of transformational organisational change, will speak about how to make that vital paradigm shift to mental health for all, using their own moving examples as illustration. We have presenters from schools, social enterprises and youth offending institutions. The conference will empower delegates with key knowledge, tools and interventions to ensure that their school, community, family group or organisation is a mentally healthy place for all. We now have all the research we need evidencing what makes a culture mentally well or mentally unwell.

In mentally well cultures, people develop both personally and professionally; they feel valued, understood and psychologically safe. They laugh, are creative and make good things happen. In mentally unwell cultures, people get mentally and physically ill (stress related sick leave). These cultures are often fear-based cultures with 'power over' leaders and lack of laughter, play and creativity, as neuroscientific research shows that fear blocks the pro-social systems in the brain. When you spend just an hour in a mentally well and mentally unwell culture, the atmosphere in both is tangible. In the current climate, increasinlgy schools are faced with pupil mental health problems and teachers who feel stressed, isolated and undervalued. Therefore it’s vital schools, organisations and communities have this knowledge to ensure their culture makes the shift to be a place of healing for all. The same fundamental principles apply to couple and family cultures.
